, rhode island. rare that you see a car going by. almost every business, city hall, everything is closed here, just like in massachusetts, the governor in connecticut also having that 4:00 ban on any cars and i wouldn't be surprised if it happens here very soon as well. i want to take you on our journey getting here. we just arrived here. it took us over five hours to get here from new york city, a trip that really shouldn't take any more than three hours. along the way, very slow going, light traffic. lots of snow plows but also some very serious accidents. we saw a jackknifed tractor-trailer that ran right into the median. we saw a huge semi that just fell off the side of the highway. we took a picture of that for you guys. that was consistent all the way up here. if you head up to maine, i want to show you some pretty dramatic video in maine. a 19-car pileup in maine. bottom line, the governor saying not a time for sightseeing, not a time for playing around. this is very, very serious. in 1978, 27 inches of snow, 26 deaths. they think this storm could be as bad or worse and we're not

on the northeast. could bring easily up to 2 feet to new york city, long island, all of connecticut, all of rhode island, eastern massachusetts, coastal new hampshire and maine blizzard warnings. millions of people, hours left to prepare, the blizzard of 2013 is starting today. you can see where it's located behind me, off the outer banks of north carolina, the heavy rain shield goes up through the mid-atlantic, all the way into southern jersey. the snow part of the storm has yet to begin. that will happen as we go through the morning hours and especially after noon today into new england. that's really your cut-off time if you're anywhere from federal jersey northward. whatever you have to get done, you'll do it in rain this morning. after about noon, get off the roads. that's when we could get stuck and we want plows to be able to clear everything out. as far as the snow totals go, this is the latest thinking on the storm. we're looking at the possibility of over 2 feet in a huge section of eastern new england. that's the historic part of the storm, from the boston area down to providence. look
is the rain. new york city, a mixture of snow and rain. long island, now over to mostly rain. coastal areas of southern new england, it's going to be a battle. that's why your snow totals will be a lot less. the full-blown snowstorm begins from boston to the hartford area and definitely around prove d providence. that's when the storm will be the strongest. that's when we'll have the blizzard conditions, high tide cycle. very dangerous at 10:00 a.m. near boston. that's when the highest winds will be felt. storm surge of two to four feet. if we're going to see houses damaged and falling into the water, we go early throughout tomorrow morning. again, the snowfall totals, they look pretty certain. one to two feet, a wide section of maine, southern new hampshire, massachusetts, connecticut, rhode island with a possibility of a bulls eye of 24 to possibly 30 inches of snow. that's where it's historic. still, widespread all the way from buffalo down to philadelphia and new york city by the time we're all done. as far as the boston area goes, that's where we expect the worst to develop during the
city we're now told the latest totals could be in the 14 inch range, boston is clearly the bulls eye of this northeast storm, but so many areas are going to feel it all around that and that city could get as much as three feet, we're being told right now. if you're planning to travel by air in the area on the map, you can pretty much forget it, folks. nearly 3800 flights have been canceled on the east coast, and the mayor of boston deploying work crews out in force, and virtually planning to shut the city down. they don't want anybody out on the roads. >> we have a 34,000 tons of salt over 600 pieces of equipment ready to be deployed throughout the storm. again, this is a storm of major proportion. stay off the roads. stay home. let the public works crews do their job the next 48 to 72 hours. >> so you hear that, and a live report coming up later in the hour from our fox extreme weather center which will give you the newest information and we will have an update coming in soon on the storm's path. and this is the other huge story right now, the desperate search for a suspected killer
's done, this will be one for the record books. stephanie abrams is live for us in new york city's times square. good morning. >> reporter: chris, good morning to you. in times square, we have seen it all. nemo has been a triple threat, rain, sleet, and snow. laguardia and central park have been reporting all snow throughout the morning hours and it's not only new york. it goes into connecticut. and nemo is just going to creep up 95 and continue to unload. tonight for everyone is when it's going to be the worst. we have blizzard warnings from massachusetts into new york city. that means three hours of winds at 35 miles per hour or more. blowing and drifting snow, visibility down to a quarter of a mile. the mayor's office says 6300 street miles here in new york city to be plowed and salted but they are ready for it. 250,000 tons of salt and of course, plows. here in new york, we're talking about a foot, give or take a few inches depending on where you are. >> i'm going to pretend you didn't say that. stephanie abrams out on a wet times square. thank you so much. we're going to have more o
nothing that city has really ever seen, believe it or not. blizzard, winter storm and coastal flood warnings are in effect this morning as 10 million people brace for the onslaught. grocery stores and gas stations are seeing long lines of customers stocking up in case of power outages. this storm is already causing a lot of havoc on travel plans across this country and event nationally, in fact about 3,000 flights, 3,000 have already been canceled, and we haven't seen the worst of it. meteorologist janice dean is out -- we thought maybe she was out, but maybe she told them, no-no, it's too cold outside. rick outside. jon: she is wearing or camouflage dress. jenna: i thought you were going to be outside. apparently i was wrong. >> reporter: i'm go outside if you need me that. i am well prepared. this weather machine has got her parka. so certainly you've got to be prepared. my husband was in line last night getting the gas. the important thing to remember is a lot of the northeast went through hurricane sandy, so we know what it's like to be without power for weeks, and we know what
it in perspective, we are just getting going here. this storm just starting to wind up. in cities like boston, dealing with a slushy mess and snow right now. maine heavy snow for you. new york, just starting to turn over to snow but by the evening rush around 5:00 p.m. really going to get blasted there in new york city. heavy snow expected tonight. could pick up another eight inches to a foot and the word of caution today is get out early, get off the roads. many governors wanting you to do that very thing. here's a look at tomorrow then. still dealing with blizzard-like conditions in the cities including boston. this is a long duration of that and that's a problem with this system. storm:con for boston is a 10. that's the highest level here at the weather channel. you need caution with this. seeing the blizzard-like conditions, additional 12 to 18 inches tonight. the winds ferocious. also gusting up to 60 miles per hour so we'll see blowing, whiteout conditions in massachusetts tonight in to through tomorrow, as well. where we pick up another five to eight inches so blizzard-like conditions
a hypocrite but that is the currency of this administration. lou: if not the city itself. [laughter] >> as opposed to our fair city. lou: not a matter of comparison that we would hope the nation's capital has a higher standard. >> i am not sure it does. john brennan i think is the president's choice and barring a revelation, revelation, yes, he probably will be confirmed. lou: thank you for being here. we will have much more on the leon panetta / benghazi testimony with a means for the security of the nation throughout the broadcast. >> targeting lawful gun owners and publishing names and addresses. we'll talk with somebody who knows the answer to that question next. more budget battles on capitol hill. where is the market headed? next. lou: in sharp swings in the market today and liz saunders joins us live from charles schwab joins us and says get used to the volatility. and then with the early trading to make it back even bnp and nasdaq down and volume on the big board today apple announces it will carefully consider the proposal that issue some form of preferred stock that sounds
into the city of chicago. these are real policies that are taking the lives of our children. >> the obama family has taken this very personally, the first lady going tomorrow. the president teared up after newtown. watch this. >> the majority of those who died today were children. beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old. >> when you look at how they're in this, can they translate this to law? >> well, i think they can translate it to law. i don't think they're going to get everything that was in the package the president presented. but i think a few things that have happened are key. one, the kind of bipartisan work with the background checks. the loop loel that it has a justification is essentially an impossible justification to give to your average voter. if the idea is we should have a background check for guns and we have that in policy but there's a certain carve out, people who get around it, it's really hard to make the case that this carve out should exist. that's at their weakest, rhetorically. >> this is, in fact, where most of the guns are being sold, right? and p
event south of new york city. we have the rain-snow line. so that might cut back a little bit of the snow totals here in new york but we're still expecting close to a foot or more in new york city. north and west of the city that's where we're getting the snowe. ongoing snow for 12 to even 18 hours with relentless wind. this is a very, very powerful storm overnight tonight. so throughout the day today, things will start to deteriorate. the worst conditions overnight tonight, into tomorrow. we'll see power outages along the east coast most certainly with winds, 30, 40, 50 miles an hour. in some cases hurricane-force winds. we have a hurricane-force bind advisories all along the coast. snow pounds new england. some areas around boston, alisyn, over three feet. which would be historic for them. alisyn: i'm putting on my parka right now. >> the good side it is happening this weekend, all the kids are going. they're excited. alisyn: schools are closing in connecticut. >> we want people to be safe. alisyn: absolutely. thanks for the update. we'll check back in? >> okay. rick: well f
's against illegal guns. founded by new york city mayor michael bloomberg. yesterday they went to washington to make their case for stricter gun control. basically the group wants to ban assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines. they also want background checks for every gun sold in america. and they would federalize a few gun crimes but not many. in order to get attention for their cause, the mayor's group needs some high powered, pardon the pun, folks backing them up. enter a few celebrities, including chris rock. >> i am just here to support the president of the united states. the president of the united states is, you know, our boss. but he is also, you know, the president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country. >> bill: wow. so mr. rock is supporting tighter gun control because that's what president obama and mrs. obama want. and mr. rock, above all, wants to be respectful to the presidency. quite a change. >> bush is unbelievable, man. this guy's un[bleep] believable. he ain't the worst president of the united states. he is the worse presid
, even new york city now with blizzard warnings, expecting 12 to 18 inches there. this is going to be a blockbuster storm. the big question is can we get everybody off the roads in time? that's what the desire is hout . the government says, look, i want all unnecessary vehicles off the road by noon tomorrow. so if we have a scene like you see behind me here, larry, where i-93 is backlogged at this time tomorrow night, we're going to have a disaster on our hands. that means some of these people are going to be spend being the night in their cars riding out the storm. 35 years ago the famous blizzard of '78 it was rush hour and people got trapped in their cars. if they are in their cars this time, the same thing will happen. history will repeat itself. we will also have hurricane force gusts along the coastline. some of these areas that were weakened by sandy will be very, very vulnerable certainly to the storm surge and the wave action that will happen with this huge nor'easter. we expect to measure this one with a yard stick, larry, two to three feet expected here in boston. >>
. a little bit of mix is possible in new york city during the day today with rain also there out on long eisland. it will change over to snow later on tonight. if anything, here is how it will look late today. the heavy snow, the snowstorm at full fledged force over new england and then tomorrow morning when everyone wakes up, blizzard conditions, high winds, hurricane force gusts off the coast from cape cord all the way down eastern long island and by saturday night it's all over with. the bottom line is the travel nearly impossible, historic storm. the bull's eye possibly 0 of 24 inches plus from boston to providence. not a bad hit for hartford to portland, maine. chris, in the new york city area talking 6 to 10 inches later on tonight but, again, new york city is the big question mark with this storm. a lot of rain at the beginning of it. >> my hometown is just south of hartford, looks right in the bull's eye. >> easily a foot. >> next, a member of the senate intelligence committee who accused the white house of practicing secret law when it comes to drone strikes. we'll ask senator r
of defense when you look and say in a benghazi or, you know, i don't want to go city by city for obvious security reasons. when you look at them, how often do you determine we'll take a look this week and see where with e are security wise. i know, state is a big part. >> the best thing we did is state asked us to join a team that would look at security at 19 embassies and determine what was needed there in order to better secure those facilities. and i think based on that, it gives us the opportunity to then demy additional -- additional marine if we have to take additional steps to make sure that those embassies are not vulnerable. so we do work with the state department when asked to try to help provide some guidance with regards to security. >> how often is a review done in some of these places, for instance, a benghazi. do they -- is it on a -- when the ambassador says, things are getting tougher, or every couple of weeks is it looked as it is deor ituated or gotten better. what kind of matrix is used? >> well, you know, look. the primary -- the primary matrix for that has to rest w

. that's going to take away from some of their total, but still you could literally go from new york city where they may get 6 to 10 inches to westchester county where it could be as much as 24 inches. all of connecticut is expecting over a foot of snow easy and it will be blowing around and once again, the state of connecticut is facing power outages with a storm of this magnitude. just hard to believe, but this poor state has just been hit so hard. and the problem, craig, is, okay, we see the power outages, the poles are down, tree limbs are down. how do you get the power back on? how do you get to the poles where there's two, three feet of snow on the ground in some of these areas? that has to be removed first before you can get in and restore power. that's why they're telling everybody, plan on extensive power outages with a storm of this magnitude and, unfortunately, everything we see meteorologically is coming together right now off the east coast of new jersey. >> jim cantore with the very latest for us from boston. thanks to you, sir. appreciate that. much more ahead with martin b
snowstorms ever. as much as three feet are expected in some places like the city of boston. that's where correspondent molly line is tonight, out in the thick of it. good evening, molly. >> reporter: good evening, john. this is expected to pick up over the course of the night. we've seen the snow steadily rising and the winds picking up a lot. one of the biggest things happening in boston, history in the making. this hasn't happened for decades. they've actually shut down the highways here. the governor asking everyone to stay off the roads all across the state as of 4:00 in the afternoon. you can still see a few cars and moving around out here. essential what the governor has sworded through disek order is r is all non-essential vehicles off the roads. there's a sign that says that. if they catch people out here, they could possibly be fined and spend up to a year in jail. that means that you can still be a hospital employee and you can still go to work and be a snow plow driver. anybody else should be safe at home by now. that's the order of the governor, and also the mayor of boston h
to september 11th there were no fewer than four significant attacks against the western interests in the city. i'd like to have you put the chart up there, and leave it up during the course of this hearing, because each member of here has a copy of this, and there's certain things that happened we all know. we know that on may 22nd the red cross was hit with an rpg. they left town. we know that on june 11th, the british ambassador's motorcade was attacked by an rpg. they left town. we know on april 10th, the united nations convoy was hit by an ied, and on june 6th the u.s. consulate was attacked with a bomb. and many, many other things and we didn't leave. while i understand the state department has primary responsibility for the protection of american diplomats rolled the world, also understand that the defense department plays an important supporting role to this effect. i suspect or witnesses to explain today why, given the clear indicators and warnings, thats to the united states interests in ben georgia si, and throughout the north africa, were growing, was the defense department not pla
